Blowoff is a composition by The Residents, and released as a bonus single with the hardcover edition of the "Freak Show" graphic novel in 1992.

History Edit

A largely instrumental work, "Blowoff" is a 13 minute piece composed of themes and ideas from the recording sessions of the group's 1990 album Freak Show.

The name of the piece is derived from circus slang: a "blowoff" is a separate, deeper part of a freak show which suckers have to pay extra to get into.

The CD also included an advertisement and membership information for the UWEB fan club, which would become defunct shortly after this release.
